The Russian Prosecutor General's office said Wednesday that it was investigating the possible role of a former top owner in the Yukos oil company in the poisoning death of ex-Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko. The prosecutor's office said in a statement that Leonid Nevzlin, who is living in Israel, and other Yukos figures wanted by Russia, could have ordered Litvinenko's murder in London last month.
